' "Fairway Estates Is -in the heart ef' the country club district and ! consists of a group of estates with ' building; sites of generous size, lni-' prtivement and carefully-drawn ! restrictions. .Although- Oakland 1 posseses many fine residential dls-1 trlcts, a group of country club es-! Mies such as this is a decided Innovation." , 1 In speaking of the public Inter-' est In Fairway Estates, the Oak Knoll Land corporation stated: We attribute the immediate public acceptance of Fairway Es- tates and the present sales activity to the fact that this exclusive new residential community fills a Ions felt need for Eastbay residents. It provides the outdoor freedom, .the opportunities for recreation and the social advantages or a country ciud estate combined with the conveniences of being located within tho rltv limits. Fairway Estates is only 20 minutes from the heart of the Oakland business Ulsirict. "Another reason Is the beautiful telling of Fairway Estates over looking the Oak Knoll Country club and golf course and with a irtatchless view of wooded hills, the harbor, the bay cities and the Golden Gate. "One of the Important realty transactions of the week was the purchase by A. J, HerrllJ of a beautiful 11 -room Spanish home on Culandrla avenue. This property valued at approximately $30,000 will, with the completion of the landscaping, be one of the most beautiful homes In the EaBtbsy. .'.

In originality and practical utility, the Anglican trust; It somblnes the Ideas of trust, family entail, and charitable foundation. The grantor transfers the bare legal title to !od. and appoints r n administrator to manage the V property for the beneficiary; thus u there are four parties to the trnns- i, action.
